Area: AquitaineOur home in France is a 17thC stone farmhouse on a hilltop surrounded by 15 ha. of meadows and chestnut woodland. We are hidden in 'la France profonde' between the Dordogne and Lot rivers, yet within a few miles of world-famous beauty spots such as the castles on the river Dordogne, the bastide town of Monpazier and the Renaissance town of Sarlat. Here, having done much of the necessary restoration work on the buildings, we can put our skills as conservationist/farmer and landscape architect to use. Around our courtyard we have the house, a stone cowshed turned gite (where we can accommodate two couples) and a large studio with office. Around this we have extensive gardens and vegetable plots, used as open air classrooms for our garden workshops. The nearest village, St Pompont, holds an excellent 'marche gourmand' every Saturday evening during the summer and there are many picturesque villages around us, tucked into the folds of the limestone hills.
Area: East KalimantanWe have a wonderful small International school in Kalimantan, Borneo, Indonesia. I would like to offer our Kindergarten and School as a volunteer placement location. We are situated in a beautiful, lush and safe complex environment. We are the perfect stepping stone to Borneo's exotic flora and fauna. We have a pool, bowling alley, gym and tennis court free for the volunteers to use whenever they are not working. We can offer free, clean, private accommodation (Air conditioning , on-suites bathroom, washer and dryer, excellent cooking facilities) to a very high standard (see photos) full personal support and advice while you are here. We also provide free Bahasa Indonesian language lessons every week. Come and immerse your self in the local culture. We would accept 3-4 volunteers at any one time but would like a minimum commitment of 2 weeks but would consider less. We ask for around 4 hours of work per day but again this is negotiable. Mainly the work would be helping our teachers and teachers assistants in the classroom environment. This would be a great opportunity for someone who loves children, has some child care and is looking to gain more teaching experience and a of course a good recommendation!! Please contact us with your CV/Resume and if possible a childcare reference, character or work reference and I will send you more information. We normally have a review after your first week here to make sure both parties are happy and hosting can continue. Here are the programs we offer School Volunteer Programs: 1) $ 20 per week Teacher Assistant Program – Practical Overseas Experience Includes: free accommodation, Bahasa Indonesian language lessons, all administration fees and recommendation/reference letters. Choice of teaching hours from 0-6 hours per day (Monday to Friday) Choice of teaching children aged group between 2 years – 17 years Total payment for stay will be taken in cash when you arrive.
